Oh, This Love!
(Virtual exhibition comented by author)
I am searching for small laws, recurring regularities in human behavior. I am trying to capture them artistically in the simplest way possible. To point out the important and emphasizing the typical. There are many, and many of them relate to love in a certain way. Let’s start with man-woman attraction.

My perspective is to view life through an imaginary mirror – i.e. Art. Art is the process of exploring the world through developing sensory perception and feelings for rhythm and proportions, static as well as dynamic balance, etc. The old love of perfection is fulfilled by new insights, or laments over its loss. For a better understanding of the world, I resort to insights from other fields of human activity.
“Money - power and illness” is my last engraving. I was inspired by Pieter Brueghel, his graphic work I have seen on one exhibition in Prague - there is something alike house-cash box, where is sitting big figure (king?) I have explained it to me as the state, so I have also made the machinery of state, but alike chemical factory. On left is frog sitting on headspring, in the middle you can see retort producing tanks. On left is also magician doing magic tricks with money… etc. First I wanted to put there old coin with portrait of Alexander Macedonian, but later I so, that we are not in 19 century, so it suits better to put there smiling face.
